We provide a range of experiences that vary on a daily basis to support the learning and development of each individual child and reflecting the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.  This enables the children to learn through play and further develop their inquisitive nature.    


The activities are child initiated play with the practitioners scaffolding the children’s learning.


We are committed to making the setting as inclusive and accessible as possible for all children to ensure that they meet their full potential.  We follow the Special Educational Needs Code of Practice on early identification and assessment of children with special educational needs and disabilities with our SEN policy.
